The error message is rather cryptic and surprising, especially since the 
tag is clearly a start tag.

But luckily the real error and its fix its simple: the document has now 
the <head> tag before the <html ...> tag, and it must appear after it.

After fixing this, a large number of other errors will be reported, but 
many of them seem to be easy to fix (e.g., space needs to be added 
between attribute specifications).
